Bump.

That's actually a very good price for a working Big Ball Bowler,
but was wondering why the 6th Players 100s Score Reel isn't
wired in the machine. The wires must be in the general area
where the 6th Player's score reel should be installed, right?

#4 8 months ago

Once I exchanged the player 1 100 reel for the player 6 100 reel, I stopped having an issue with the game. Now it seems to work 100% minus the 6th player 100 reel. Played 20+ games on it and went through all 6 players. Its not keeping accurate score for player 6 in the 100 reel, but that was very rare to play with 6 people anyways.

Was pretty happy to see it working well again.

Wish i had my pin barn built. Id love to have this

Interesting I would have though the switches under the pins would run the other way. Do these switches fold flat as the puck slides over them. ?

GLWS

The ball rolls over top of the switch, they fold away from you as you bowl. Depending on what switches are hit, it releases the pins.

As someone who has had a bowler, keep in mind that you not only need 16.5' of space for the bowler, but another 3-5' of arm swinging length! GLWS, great game.

I was tempted to build another extension for full length. Finding an extension alone would be hard.

That's pretty nice and a fair price.

Im taking this off the market. After fixing the issue and perhaps the wrong forum to sell this on (lack of interest) Im actually happy the games been working pretty good now. Open to selling in the future.
